Trump Makes Big Announcement About Martial Law
By Jack Davis
On Sunday, President Donald Trump put the rumors to rest that he would declare martial law.
“Martial law = Fake News. Just more knowingly bad reporting!”
Trump has waged an unprecedented effort to fight back against the results of the Nov. 3 election.
Although the Electoral College has declared presumptive President-elect Joe Biden the winner of the Nov. 3 presidential election, the Trump campaign has insisted that there has been voter fraud in states that include Arizona, Nevada, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin, as well as Pennsylvania.
Despite multiple anecdotal claims of voting irregularities, proof has yet to surface that there was a widespread effort to distort the voting process in such a way that would have impacted the final results of the presidential election. Numerous affidavits testifying to various types of election fraud have been filed in courts in several swing states.
These affidavits indicate that those who witnessed conduct believe that fraud took place but those allegations have yet to be proven through either the courts or law enforcement.
In the emotional frenzy of the times, the extreme of martial law has been discussed.
The New York Times reported that “Trump asked about that idea” during a meeting at the White House Flynn attended on Friday.
Media figures continued to spin conspiracy theories about the Friday gathering.
The website Axios added fuel to the fire in a report that cited “senior Trump administration officials” and claimed their “fears include Trump’s interest in former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s wild talk of martial law.”
“Look @dougducey you made the list and your crooked buddy @BrianKempGA! @realDonaldTrump please impose martial law in these 7 states and get the machines/ballots!” Lindell tweeted. The post was later deleted.
Judicial Watch leader Tom Fitton noted that the talk of martial law appealed to the left at one time.
Some reports have claimed Trump might kick off his 2024 presidential campaign on Jan. 20, which is Inauguration Day, but Trump has not commented on those rumors.
